Trial counsel, the parties, claims representatives and all other 1 persons with full authority to settle the case must personally attend unless the Court has, before the 2 Conference, authorized telephonic participation upon written application with notice to all other 3 parties and good cause shown. A party's failure to secure the personal attendance of the persons with 4 authority to settle the matter will be grounds, in the Court's discretion, for the issuance of an Order to 5 Show Cause why sanctions should not issue. 6 7 2. Discovery in this matter is stayed until May 18, 2012. The deposition of Liuxia Wong (“Wong”) currently set for April 18, 2012, is taken off calendar. 8 3.
